Police urge cyclists not to use Mountain Road

Police are urging cyclists to reconsider plans to rider over the Mountain Road today.

Officers have been made aware of plans for a group of people to ride on the Mountain Road later today.

Cyclists aren't banned from the route during TT, but police warn slow-moving pedal bikes don't mix well with fast-moving cars and motorbikes.

Officers will be waiting at the Hairpin to speak to cyclists and attempt to dissuade them from taking the route.
